• My kids wanted to know what it was like for me growing up.
So I took their phones, shut off the internet, gave them a popcicle, told them to go outside till the
street lights came on

    • Oh how I miss those days! I would wake up early, mom would put a pitcher of iced tea, kool-aid and or lemonade on the porch and I would be gone all day until either dinner or street light came on. Whichever was later. Or occasionally when my mom had to come find me lol.

That basically does nothing. Then I wrote down message in numbers. The same way we had to. It was so funny
